User-Submitted Meter Center & CT Cabinet Families for Revit
Brian Muir of Muir Engineering has long advocated for more collaboration among Design Master users and MEP professionals in general. He asked us to share some Revit families he developed for meter centers and CT cabinets.
DISCLAIMER: These families were inspected by Design Master Software for general useability. Design Master Software has not evaluated their usefulness in live projects. Download and use these families at your own risk.
H+W Engineering was formed in early 2017 when Bryan Wayne, PE, joined forces with the founder of Harmon & Associates, mechanical engineer Tom Harmon, PE. Their firm has experienced significant growth in the last six years; “we’ve got about 50 people that work here,” Bryan estimates. And with projects that include commercial TI, life science, data centers, hospitality, and multifamily dwellings, they stay busy. “We’re doing something right,” he says.
The H+W Engineering electrical department first purchased Design Master Electrical for AutoCAD in 2019 to evaluate its effectiveness, then ramped up its use in early 2022. “We started to use Design Master [beyond evaluating it] about a year ago, and now we’re trying to use it exclusively for everything. Our goal is to be 100% Design Master in both CAD and Revit by .”
